Spirit Advocacy


Following Government advice the SPIRIT Advocacy office is currently closed and staff are working at home.

We have a message from our Chair and our Manager.

Spirit Advocacy is a registered charity and was formed in late 2011, following a period of management re-organisation for HUG (Action for Mental Health) and People First Highland, SPIRIT Advocacy is the management and employment body for both organisations.

Governed by a board of 15 directors, all of whom act in a voluntary capacity, and which includes three representatives from HUG, three representatives from People First Highland and three representatives from SPEAK; SPIRIT’s mission is to help HUG, People First Highland and SPEAK to grow as good, well-run user-led advocacy collectives.
